The Tiger's Apprentice - My First Animation Voice Acting Job!

Finally! After weeks of being confirmed, I can release this super exciting news. I've always wanted to voice a character in a full-length feature animation and now, I get to fulfil that dream. And what a nice story it is!

The film is based on the book by Lawrence Yep

The following is from The Movie Database (TMDb):

The story centers on a normal boy, Tom, who gets drawn into this world against his wishes when his eccentric grandmother who he lives with in San Francisco's Chinatown turns out to be the guardian of the phoenix egg. When his grandmother perishes in battle and is spirited away in a ghost cart, Tom must apprentice with an unlikely mentor - a tiger, Mr. Hu - to learn ancient magic and become the egg's new protector. They team with an unlikely band of exotic creatures, each representing a different sign of the Chinese zodiac, who can morph into human form while retaining their innate animal characteristics.
